Promises with async shiny on shiny server open source

promises

#1

I’ve built an app that leverages promises from the async shiny dev repo. It runs great locally on a mac, but it doesn’t display any output from the async portion of the app when deployed on shiny server open source (ubuntu ec2 instance with 4 cores). Do promises only work on shiny server pro?


#2

Found an answer on my own! Thankfully it does work on open source! The issue was with ubuntu and the httpuv package, which needs to be updated with a special linux dependency before installing the async shiny dev package from github. https://github.com/beakerbrowser/beaker/issues/54
